Cherry Pineapple Glazed Ham

"I am lucky to receive a spiral sliced ham from my boss each Christmas. This year I wanted to glas it differently, but I forgot to get ingredients at the store, so I had to use what was on hand. This recipe was born. Cook time does not include warming the ham."

    I made this for Christmas 2013 and the glaze is wonderful! <br/>Here are my suggestions: I used Smucker's "Orchard's Finest" Michigan Red Tart Cherry Preserves, Dole Crushed Pineapple, I didn't have spicy brown mustard so I used Dijon mustard instead and no cloves (not everyone liked them so I left them out). <br/><br/>Make extra "compote" it was a great hit and everyone used extra on the ham or just to eat. If you do the spiral ham and like it warmer than recommended keep basting the ham with the juices. Follow the rest of the directions as stated. I served the ham with King's Hawaiian Dinner Rolls.

    This was a HUGE success - so, so easy to do and very pretty to look at. I served it a room temp for Xmas lunch and it was raved about. I used marmalade as I rarely see cherry preserve here. I did not have a spiral ham either - this suits any style of pre cooked ham you purchase - it was wonderful !


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
